Breaking Taboos and Bridging Cultures: Exploring Saxofshaolin and Dretegs’ ‘left right left


Saxofshaolin and Grammy-nominated Producer Dretegs join forces to release “left right left,” a groundbreaking collaboration that confronts taboo topics within the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community while celebrating cultural diversity and resilience.

“left right left” is a bold statement urging a shift towards body-positivity and sex-positivity within the AAPI community. The title itself refers to the movement your “屁股” (butt) makes when the song begins, setting the stage for a candid exploration of love, sex, and identity.

Saxofshaolin, the visionary behind the track, hopes to spark meaningful discourse and push the culture in the right direction. With its innovative blend of Caribbean instruments and Chinese traditional music, “left right left” offers a fresh sonic experience that transcends cultural boundaries. The song serves as a cultural bridge, celebrating the shared history between Hakka Chinese and Jamaican people while inviting listeners to engage in dialogue about important issues.

Furthermore, Saxofshaolin’s recent Artist-in-Residency program at The Museum of Chinese in America in New York City demonstrates his commitment to exploring and celebrating cultural heritage through music. “left right left” is a testament to his dedication to using music as a tool for social change and cultural understanding.

“left right left” is a thought-provoking and musically captivating masterpiece that challenges societal norms and celebrates diversity.
